Hello and Happy Halloween! I’ve always been a big fan of Halloween and love the latest collection from Simple Stories. Although I’m not currently doing pocket-style scrapbooking, the pocket-sized inserts make great backgrounds for cards.

With the background done you have more time to spend on the focal point. The tag is cut from green cardstock and a circle die is used to cut out the coordinating polka dot paper for the center.

3D Foam Squares are a great way to add instant dimension and extra interest to paper or chipboard elements.

Foam adhesive gives the illusion that this cute little ghost is just floating on the tag.

3D Foam Squares are also used to add dimension to the paper cut outs on this card – making it a great last-minute design.

Googly eyes are a fun way to dress up a Halloween card.

Our Tiny Zots™ for Bling are perfect to adhere these small accents.

They look great attached to the witch sticker that is peeking through the die cut window. SuperStik glue stick was used to adhere the die cut black frame around the window. This glue stick is great to use whenever you need a little wiggle room to get something lined up just so since it takes a minute to dry.

    I’m making my Halloween cards right now. guess which adhesive I’m using to pop the ghosts and black cats off the cards. Same as you.
